On March 25, 2009, Justice J.E. Oyefeso of Ikeja High Court, Lagos will decide whether an accused person, Chief Collins Oyejiaka, a Lagos businessman, who is standing trial in an advance fee fraud case should be admitted to bail.The 49- year old indigene of Imo state was arraigned last week by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on four-count charge of obtaining money under false pretence.
Collins Oyejiaka and C.B Trust Limited were alleged to have on the 7th and 16th of August 1996 fraudulently obtained the sums of $5000 and $57,000 from Mr. Carle Vance of Oxford, Ohio, USA by falsely representing the sum to be the cost of remittance of funds for an oil allocation contract from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges and the trial Judge ordered that he be remanded in Kirikiri Maximum prisons till March 25, 2009 when she will rule on his bail application.The accused was arrested by EFCC on the strength of a petition from the victim. The complainant alleged that Oyejiaka and others still at large, defrauded him to the tune of $1,813,728.00 over a period of time through wire/ money transfers. He explained that the money was transferred in 16 different transactions to the syndicate’s accounts in at least seven countries: Nigeria, Switzerland, Benin Republic, Dubai, Belgium, Hong Kong and Japan.
The complainant who is said to be willing to come to Nigeria to give evidence against the accused person recalls that in October 1995, he was contacted by a Chief E.D. Akan, who claimed to be a Director of NNPC. The said Akan introduced two other persons to him: one Emeka Etiaba, as his friend and confidant, and Dr. Edward Kathy as Assistant Internal Remittance Director at the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN. He said that in the course of their discussion on telephone, they made him believe that he could be supplied with Nigeria’s crude oil and they sent him several fake documents to back up their claim. They claimed these documents purportedly emanated from various government institutions and banks in Nigeria and abroad.
The victim swallowed the bait and started transferring money to them in Nigeria and abroad in respect of the transaction. He met members of the syndicate in Washington, USA; Accra, Ghana; London, UK and Brussels, Belgium. All these went on for about 10 years and after spending almost two million dollars without receiving any crude oil supply, it dawned on him that he had been duped. He subsequently petitioned EFCC.

A 22-year old up-coming actor, Christian Duru has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment by an Ikeja High Court presided over by Justice M.O Obadina for offences bordering on obtaining money by false pretence, unlawful possession of scam mails and credit cards.Delivering judgment last Thursday, March 12,2009, Justice Obadina found the accused guilty of attempting to obtain the sum of $900 from one James Cockrum, an American.
The road to prison for Duru who claimed to be a movie actor, started last year when some group of people petitioned EFCC that De Unique Cyber café located at Ire Akari Estate Road, Iyana Isolo, Lagos had become the haven of fraudsters and that their activities were disturbing the peace of the area. Based on the petition, operatives of EFCC swooped on the Cyber café, and Duru was caught sending scam mails.
He was consequently arrested and during interrogation, he confessed that he was using stolen credit cards from the internet to pay and advertise puppies in international Newspapers like Washington City Paper and Newsday. Indeed, he was nabbed while attempting to use a fake name, Jane Cocher to dupe one Elaine Adams, an American who sells puppies. His sentence takes effect from August 2008 when he was arrested.

Along the line the victim, a 56- year old woman from Australia told the convict that she wanted a husband and all the men she had met always disappointed her. The convict, who is married with three children instantly applied and told the victim that she had met her Mr. Right.
To convince his prey, he told the woman that he was a 57 -year old widower and that few years back, his wife and their only child died in a ghastly motor accident in Lagos. He sent the picture of a white man to the victim to foreclose any suspicions. The victim accepted his proposal and that gave room for the next stage of the 419 heist.
Few weeks later, he called the woman to introduce himself as Dr. Saheed Bakare and informed her that her ‘fiancé,’ Benson Lawson had an accident and needed money for his treatment. The love-struck woman sent some money. Two weeks after the convict called the victim and thanked her profusely for her kindness.

Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mrs Farida Waziri on Thursday, March 19, 2009 warned Nigerian youths to refrain from fraudulent activities or face the consequence of going to jail.Waziri who gave the warning against the backdrop of recent conviction of a number of young Nigerians in cases being handled by the EFCC,spoke when she presented the sum of $5400 as restitution to Acting India High Commissioner in Nigeria, Mr. Chihoori Rommel. The money was recovered from two Nigerian fraudsters who scammed an Indian national.
According to her, EFCC will continue to discharge its duties of ridding the society of economic and financial crimes thereby making Nigeria a safe haven for foreign investors. “We shall continue to protect foreign investors and their investments in Nigeria and punish perpetrators of crimes,” she said. She warned Nigerians especially the youths to refrain from fraudulent activities as the Commission will spare no effort to fish out those who commit fraud.“They need to be reminded that crimes do not pay and the Commission will always get them and bring them to justice”,she stressed.
The two fraudsters, Peter Iniovosa and Okuns Augustine swindled Mushtag Ahmed Gana in 2007 by claiming to be expatriate human resources managers with Maxtone Group Nigeria and the Department of Petroleum Resources. They pretended they could offer Mushtag Gana a job in Maxtone Group Nigeria but requested that he forward some money to them. Gana believed them and subsequently wired the sum of $5400 on three instalments to the fraudsters through a new generation bank. Gana later realized that he was scammed and reported the case to the bank which in turn reported the matter to the EFCC. The two suspects were subsequently arrested and prosecuted at the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt on a five (5) count charge. They were convicted and sentenced on all five counts to one year imprisonment in October 2008.
Mr. Chihoori Rommel thanked the Commission for a job well done, saying it goes a long way in enhancing the new initiative to rebrand Nigeria. He said Nigeria and India were two friendly nations which have a long history of good bilateral trade relationship which at the moment stands at $9billion.

If its from Ghana it is most likely a scam..Dont make a fool of yourself,,it isnt real..Dont send them any more money..
Hi, this Young Lady has many heads. The latest one she is now Kelly Marcus and she is in Nigeria for a Wedding and lost her passport. Offers very readily to send pictures of herself and even a UK driving licence. Does that look real ?? I don't think so. Amazingly, she refuses offers for larger amounts, which I thought strange. I agree with other comments about this scammer, she is rather lacking in Grey Cells. So beware, I wasn't taken in by her, just amused me to play along with her silly story.
please be very careful of this man named in scam david brown. his e mail address is email@example.com he said to me that he's a building contractor from usa in oklahoma and have a contract tour in africa. he said many promises and dreams and told me to settle down with me and only death can separate us and he loved me so much and he can give me a bright future etc.until the time that i found out that i thought that i fell in love with him so much, and suddenly, i realised that he's deceiving me now little by little. he said that he's sick and ill and he's in the hospital and asking ma to send him money for his treatment. i wondered, because, he told me that he was rich and how come that he's getting money from me. i tried to test him and ask his details and i found out that the address that he has given to me was the scammers.i thanked God that i found out the truth. I also deceived him that i sent him money but with diffierent control numbers in western union , and he was so persistent to get that money because he's always ringing me. but it's too late now for him. be very careful about this man. his e mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org and he said that he is a building contractor in oklahoma usa and had a contract tour in africa. many thanks.i hope that you can learn a lesson from my experience and be wise as well from the scammers.

I am communicating with someone right now who seems too good to be true. She has not asked me for any money yet but that will likely change soon. When she lies to me I will respond by lying to her too. When she asks me to send $500 by Western Union I will respond with 'I will send you $800 to include the $500 plus any extra expenses, and you don't have to pay me back.' Then I will later respond with, 'The money has been sent by Western Union this morning and the transfer control number is 2358853044' At least that way it will force her to make an unnecessary and wasteful trip to the Western Union location. Why would a gorgeous supermodel be interested in an unattractive 49 year old man who has not revealed if he already has children? Why would someone send lovely pictures of herself but not ask for any in return? Why would an American citizen who has supposedly lived in America communicate in English using phases that no one else uses, therefore implying that she speaks English as a second Language? Phases used include, 'I have the blue eyes and brown hairs' I must give this bitch credit for one thing, The two pictures she sent me do look alike. She has begged me to use Yahoo Messenger which I have no problem with using. It all goes with the saying...If something sounds too good to be true then it is too good to be true. Anyway if you have any comments you can contact me at dianearbus at aol dot com Its actually a separate temporary email address which will soon be closed. By using it I don't care if I end up receiving a lot of spam or hate e-mail.
Tyron Williams, Date of birth aug 17, shes on Alt.com under the name VctoriousMistres. all other details match perfectly. Ive been playing along with her stor for some time now (tonight anyways) and even told her ive transferred the money but having issues with fraud identity. should be fun xD
another idea might be to post all known pictures of what they are using, might be a group of people, but they seem to ask for pictures, so they may use other peoples pictures.
I just had a encounter with a Kelly Sandy I belive is a nigerian scam. supposedly is a US citizen thats stuck in nigeria do to hospital bills.
